Make it stop!
Make it stop!
Get a puppy. Thats what my mom told me circa junior year of college when i wanted a baby…
Or play the SIMS and make your ideal lifestyle on the game
And i can empathize with you…I want a baby so bad sometimes…but then i remember me and FI live in a 1B/1B lol
Hope this helps
Or just babysit the brattiest kids you know! It will at least cure you for a couple days. I am right there with you!
I agree with MrsWall2B. My FSIL has had baby fever ever since her sister popped one out about a year ago. They are nowhere near ready to have a child so we have been on the puppy kick lately.
we were TTC or NTNT (not trying not to) and my husband lost his job. All of a sudden the reality of what life would have been like had we been sucessfull freaked me out, and now I want to wait till we have some major savings.
If nothing else watch the video.
Babysit someone’s kids for a weekend. We did this, and there was an explosive diaper episode.
Maybe doing some type of volunteering at a daycare or hospital around babies? Maybe if there are any women’s shelters in your area that need help with childcare while their moms attend meetings? Or if you belong to some sort of religious organization maybe they need help with childcare during services?
I agree that babysitting can help but it also can TOTALLY backfire.
We babysat my niece and nephew two weekends ago. I taught him (3 years old) how to wink but he didn’t really get it when we were there with them that weekend. Last Friday we went to dinner with them and he sat next to me and just winked every time he looked at me. SO ADORABLE!
FI’s 11 year old brother stays with us every once in awhile for a weekend and even though he’s far from being a baby, every time he leaves we look at each and say “no babies yet!” He wears us out! Kids are hard work (duh). So I second babysitting, but getting a dog helps too. They’re like a starter child.
Hang out 24/7 with someone in her first trimester. It was horrible.
I work in the nursery/primary at church every week for 2 hours…that cures any ounce of baby fever I could ever think of having. LOL
go to the playground section at the mall – omg disaster. that helps me. either that or the childrens section (or any section) of walmart. hmmm esp past 11pm… yikes.
or research the detailed bills of pregnancy, labor/delivery and costs of healthcare & costs of having a child. try to make a budget.. ha!
